Here are my current UserPreferencesMask findings (but I don't say the list is complete B) ):

Unofficial UserPreferencesMask reference.

If anyone find out more info, please share. ;)

________________________________________

Edit: Just a note - I believe the list is presently almost complete, maybe there could be new bits used in the Windows Vista, but I haven't tested it yet...

Edit2: I removed the codebox and the old txt file, to download new one, just check out the post below.

Hi there,

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to change the menu like this:

Regarding UserPreferencesMask, in the picture there are Flat menus and Shadow under menus tweaks enabled. The rest (i.e. graphics) would depend on an applied Visual style. (I suppose that the screenshot is taken from an application like OfficeXP.)

; a file with INF extension:
[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"

[DefaultInstall]
BitReg=Tweak

[Tweak]
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","UserPreferencesMask",1,0x02,2
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","UserPreferencesMask",1,0x04,2

Thanks for the answer.

Does anybody know a Windows Classic Theme with menus in Office XP style?

1) Save the text to VisualTweaks.INF (Please note that it has the .INF extension and not the .REG extension). I use a .INF file because it allows for bit-wise operations and a .REG does not allow bit-wise operations.

2) Edit the VisualTweaks.ING and at the end of the file you will find lines that contain stringname=value. You only need to modify each value to the desired setting.

3) Run the following command to apply the VisualTweaks.INF:

[Version]

Is it supposed to say "2) Edit the VisualTweaks.ING " with an .ING or is that a typo, I assume?
